Building on the success of UNIDIR's 2002 "Outer Space and Global Security" conference, the 2004 conference "Safeguarding Space for All: Security and Peaceful Uses" challenged participants to delve deeper into the issues, with a view to providing solid recommendations for action. The aim was to present a new framework for thinking about security in space, a holistic approach that would successfully encompass the wide range of peaceful space uses and the threats that could potentially jeopardize a secure space environment. Through this comprehensive approach, participants strove to identify useful, practical steps that policy makers could take to help safeguard space for the peaceful use of all.
